Despair, Anyone? 

Obama’s undeniable intelligence and oratorical gifts have led many of us (myself included) to get perhaps a little too confident in him. Of course, I don’t think anyone who's been awake for the past eight years would dare suggest that that he’s a shoo-in for the White House, but as decent and intelligent human beings we tend to believe that rationality and morality will prevail. But then we remember that we live in the most retarded civilization on earth, and we recall how gullible and malleable the electorate is -- how susceptible they are to the lies of the Rethug smear machine. Make no mistake, should Obama emerge as the nominee, he will be subjected to the nastiest campaign in American history. The most brutal and (sadly) effective Rovian psy-ops we’ve ever witnessed will be employed with no expense spared. I’m really sorry to say that I don’t believe Obama and his people will be talented and effective enough to withstand the offensive. They haven’t shown me that they’re ready for a bloody street fight with the nastiest motherfuckers on the block. In fact, they’ve shown just the opposite. For all of his gifts, Obama is very much a product of the mainstream Democratic Party, the weakest, most pathetic and clueless collection of losers in political history. Obama is good, but he’ll have to be a miracle worker to prevail, and I think he’s probably about thirty percent better than Kerry was. That ain’t gonna cut it.
